Here’s What Cloudways Users Think


– Great speed.
– Solid support
– Super quick addition of new projects.

Migrated sites across to @Cloudways .. their varnish setup seems faster than our Litespeed config ever was, plus cost savings and more support options. So far, so good and this seems to have been a great decision.

Tried MANY plugins to speed up WordPress which do seem do make Google’s PageSpeed score better but “real” speed never really improved. Moved host after 10 years to @Cloudways and I’m amazed at REAL speed improvements, and so the transfers begin!

2 use good quality hosting

Hosting can make or break your website’s speed and performance.

I recommend @Cloudways for excellent performance and competitive pricing.

For most clients needs: @Cloudways (they’ve struck a great balance between performance, flexibility and cost)

Cloudways. By far the best and most cost effective I’ve ever used.

I migrated all my sites WordPress sites to @linode servers through @Cloudways Easy and love the interface!

Acabo de migrar de servidor 5 instalaicones de WordPress, algunas bastante antiguas, con una configuración complejilla. A pesar de eso, gracias a @Cloudways ha sido fácil.

I got all my sites set up with Cloudways and enjoy it. Simplicity in it’s setup, and easy to manage each site/server 🤘💯

I want to give a quick shoutout to @Cloudways, the host of my site.

With the events taking place this week, I’ve received nearly a month’s worth of traffic in three days. Their server is going strong, never slowed down and remains fast despite the pressure.

Thank you!

If you’re looking for a better host I’d highly recommend cloudways – it’s who I’m with and you can scale the size of the server as needed.

We use @Cloudways with a @digitalocean cluster. It’s been a great experience so far. Super scalable, great performance, developer & designed friendly environment. Recommend it 100%

Frequently Asked Questions

WP Engine's lowest plan starts at $30, and you can host only one website on that plan. With Cloudways, you can start with just $12 and host as many sites as you want on a single server!

With WP Engine, the features you get depend on which plan you choose, but with Cloudways, you get the same set of features on all plans, allowing online businesses of all sizes to take complete advantage of the cloud hosting platform!

For a more in-depth comparison, head over to the WP Engine vs. Cloudways page.

No, Kinsta only offers regular WordPress hosting. They don't let you pick your server and bind you to Google Cloud as the only hosting provider, giving you minimum control over your website setup and management.

Conversely, Cloudways supports WordPress as well as other PHP-based CMS like Drupal, Magento, Laravel, and Joomla. And unlike Kinsta, Cloudways lets you pick from five cloud providers, including DigitalOcean, Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Linode, and Vultr, depending on your requirements.

Also, you get twice as many global data centers (65+) with Cloudways than Kinsta, so your customer base enjoys the fastest loading times.

With security features like dedicated firewalls, Cloudflare, SSL, regular security patching, two-factor authentication, and bot protection, your websites are well-protected against malicious traffic, malware, and other forms of digital attacks.

Managed WordPress hosting is a form of web hosting that makes installing and managing your WordPress site easier, where your web host manages most technical and server-side issues. Managed hosting frees your time from handling security risks and backups, monitoring uptime, and scaling your infrastructure when your site grows.

Cloudways provides managed WordPress hosting services and also lets you host applications like Joomla, Magento, Drupal, and other PHP-based apps that you can launch in 1-click operations.

The calculator is based on publicly available data from leading hosting providers. When you select your estimated monthly visitors, the calculator determines the server size needed for the visitors on different hosting plans.

When you contact Cloudways, one of our experts will reach out to you to schedule a time to talk. All our experts are highly trained, and they can answer any hosting-related questions you have so you can make an informed decision.

The larger a cloud server is, the more traffic it can handle. For example, a 4GB server can handle more traffic than a 1GB or 2GB server. Use the Web Hosting Savings Calculator to find the ideal server size for your website's traffic.

Cloudways lets you install unlimited applications or websites on any server size. Depending on your volume of traffic, however, you may need a dedicated server for each website.

Automatic updates for WordPress can save you time, but they sometimes break your site. Cloudways solves this with SafeUpdates - a feature that automatically backs up your site before updates, then tests the updates in a staging site. If there are any errors, the updates do not go live. SafeUpdates keeps your sites up and running at all times.

Paying someone to manually check WordPress updates may cost anywhere between $15 to $150 per hour. With Cloudways, SafeUpdates starts at $3 per web application for up to five websites and drops to $2 per application for six sites or more.
